Plush Toilet Seat Cover to DIY Viking Costume

This DIY Halloween costume is really creative.  Cheri took a new plush bathroom seat cover and turned it into an integral part of a DIY Viking Costume. Awesome! I love seeing things refashioned into something else!

Turn Cardboard into a Space Costume

This is an awesome refashion idea. Take cardboard and paint a headpiece for a Halloween Costume. The possibilities are endless. And I love that it’s so affordable. All you need to do is add some dark clothes and you have an original and memorable costume this Halloween! And this idea would also be so fun to make for a Family Costume theme!

See the examples and instructions at Martha Stewart.

A scarecrow costume is perfect for Fall and Halloween! I love that Heather took a pair of old overalls and gave them a new look with RIT dye and some awesome patches, to make a fabulous costume for her son.
